On Friday, November 20th, fifty attendees at the Greenbuild 2015 conference took to the road to tour a first-of-its kind housing initiative in Southeast Washington, Weinberg Commons. They also got an up-close and personal look at how EPDM can be used in a building that is designed to redefine standards of energy efficiency.

ERA is proud that the innovative use of our products has played a part in helping this vision become reality
